“10 Ways to Build Resilience”, – American Psychological Association 2010

(1) maintain good relationships with close family members, friends and others 

(2) avoid seeing crises or stressful events as unbearable problems

(3) accept circumstances that cannot be changed

(4) develop realistic goals and move towards them

(5) take decisive actions in adverse situations

(6) look for opportunities of self-discovery after a struggle with loss

(7) develop self-confidence

(8) keep a long-term perspective and consider the stressful event in a broader context

(9) maintain a hopeful outlook, expecting good things and visualizing what is wished

(10) take care of one’s mind and body, exercising regularly, paying attention to one’s own needs and feelings and engaging in relaxing activities that one enjoys.

Hard to argue with any of these points but you do have to work on them. The same is true for your business. Could your business tick the boxes on all of these?

About the author,

Hi I’m Derek O’Dwyer. I have been an ActionCOACH for the last 18 years. I live in Clare and work with businesses around Ireland to take their business to the next level. I am passionate about business and providing help and advice. In the past 18 years I have worked with over 400 business owners helping them and their business. I adapt my coaching depending on what you and your business need. I find that each coaching relationship is different but as long as we understand that we have a common objective with timescales, positive things happen quickly. I am a firm believer i the concept of “what you can measure you can manage” and “what you measure you can improve”. Key performance indicators and accountability form the bedrock of my coaching platforms. If making more money from your business, working less hours in your business and having a great team running your business then it’s worth having a discussion with me. If you are willing to implement changes I will be there to help every step of the way. In terms of personal accolades and recognition I have been awarded ActionCOACH of the year in Ireland every year for the last ten years In 2019 I was inducted into the ActionCOACH Global Hall Of Fame I was global Rookie Coach of The Year in 2002 having achieved remarkable success as the first ActionCOACH in Europe. Many of my clients have also received awards from their peers for their business improvements.
